Finding the Right Candidate

by | Sep 16, 2019

Is your company expanding and you need to find new talents to add to your team? There is no other more challenging process for a company – large or small – than hiring top talent.

HR will always be a big investment, so it is critical to employ the appropriate measures to ensure you’re getting a better return on your investment and that’s where our experienced recruitment team comes in handy.

MagicMondayz can eliminate the stress of finding the best talent for your team and help you grow your business in the most effective and cost-efficient way.  We treat every client individually and offer tailored services based on the needs of your business.

In order for us to help you find the right candidate we have listed some of the key components to keep in mind when looking for a candidate.

Firstly, make sure that you develop a job description that lists the key responsibilities and behavioural characteristics of the person you feel is your ideal candidate. The better you describe the role and the candidate you’re looking for, the bigger the chance it that you find the person.

When it comes to interviewing the candidates, here are 10 key questions you want to find out about them:

  1. Are the candidates highly adaptive?
  2. Do they ask great questions?
  3. Are they genuinely curious?
  4. Can they see patterns in disparate information?
  5. Are they team players?
  6. Are they good resource managers?
  7. Are they enthusiastic about people and relationships?
  8. Can they admit to mistakes?
  9. Do they see learning as pleasure?
  10. Is this the kind of learner you want on your team?

Other important steps to finding the right candidate is to carefully go through the candidates’ CV and check up on references.  You should also consider their soft skills and their cultural fit, and make sure that they check the following boxes:

  • Creates a good first impression
  • Displays a strong work ethic
  • Communicates clearly and effectively
  • Takes ownership for past results
  • Shows self-starting initiative
  • Functions effectively in a team
  • Exudes a positive attitude
  • Exhibits an ethical compass
  • Shows a willingness to learn
  • Demonstrates drive for results
